when we were young we ran circles
round all the pretty ones all the city's sons
we ran like tigers on the range
but now something inside you has changed
when we met we never slept
there just wasn't time there wasn't time
when we met we never slept
we'd stay up all night we'd just laugh and ride
we shot like rockets in the sky
now all's you do is you sleep or you cry
please don't go downtown tonight
there's nothing left for you downtown tonight
don't you dare go downtown cause lord knows
i'll find out
please don't go downtown tonight
the days come and the days go
there's no relief they just repeat
the days come and the days go
they were so sweet so sweet and lovely
we burned like stars in outer space
but now you disappear for days and days and days
please don't go downtown tonight
there's nothing left for you downtown tonight
don't you dare go downtown cause lord knows
i'll find out
please don't go downtown tonight
she's just misery she's just misery
stay with me stay with me
when we were young we ran circles round
all the chosen ones all the frozen ones
when we were young we ran circles round
all the pretty ones all the city's sons
now we're weak and we're poor
just trying to grasp a little more and more and more
please don't go downtown tonight
